Cane creek thudbuster and flipping saddle

Hello!

Recently I purchased the cane creek thudbuster LT for my electric bike. When I made the purchase I didn't think about the need for the saddle to flip up so I could take out the battery. I do not want to take out the entire seat post every time I want to take out the battery, do you guy know some sort 'gadget' you can put on the thudbuster (or any non-flippable seat post for this manner) to allow the saddle to flip?

When I say 'flip' I mean like this:

@Greenzo , really like the thudbusters for their comfort; however, you may have to compromise and use the quick release on your seat post to pull out the battery or just charge it on the bike (your pic looks like a Hebb or Ezee bike). That's a small price to pay for cush for the tush! :) Not aware of any flip up style seat posts that are compatible with a thudbuster.
